Piggy Banks Verses Churches
It has been widely reported about the problem with piggy banks in the UK. Muslims have found them offensive. Pigs are considered unclean by the Muslims, and this is one area that Jews have a similar belief.
Now the "politically correct" crisis is coming to a head over piggy banks. We suggest that if you have a piggy bank in your home, that you should now keep quiet about it. While this may seem like a minor step to avoid offending a religious group, we have also seen something that could be considered more draconian. There are reports coming out of Indonesia, that there is now a clash between Muslims and Christians. There have been pleas for help to Australia because of religious intolerance and Churches being forced to closed down.
We think the UK may be going to far in trying to remove piggy banks because they offend Muslims, and we also think that the Muslims are going to far to remove Christianity from Indonesia.
My question is why cannot we just be more tolerant of each other? The forceful removal of Churches is indeed bad, but should we give up our piggy banks also?
